BP and McAmmond 

The Toronto Star has an interesting piece on how batting practice works. I knew the gist of how it worked (better/more senior players first) but I learned a few things about how hitters approach getting prepared.

Also, the Sens made a nice depth signing in inking Dean McAmmond to a 1-year deal yesterday. Haven't heard anything about the terms yet, but assuming a reasonable price, he's a good signing. I was a bit surprised that he has only played 19 career playoff games though.
